Please remember safety when using Procian dyes. They are intense chemicals.
If you use them in powdered form you need a mask and safe place to work. If
the powder is spilled, it is quite literally a chemical spill. Once diluted
in water, there is no health hazard beyond what penetrates the skin if not
wearing gloves.
